it was a lot of good information and the narrator was easy to listen to
his voice is smooth but not somatic
dont make a film of this book because it doesnt translate
A book that summarizes a great deal of recent research into how we think. It points out the shortcuts our brain takes in perception and memory.
The examples it gives do make you question yourself and some of your own actions... but that is a good thing (right??).
I like the fact that the language is modern and hip. It makes it more entertaining to listen to. It is funny and inspires self-reflection. I also like that he finishes each chapter with a little snippet of self-help; emphasizing that we are not slaves to the autocratic parts of our brains.
Yes, of course, very in depth study of human nature....
Listening of things that we all have done or do...
Well done, pleasant voice and carries the tone very well.
Things we all do...
This book really made me think and rethink and begin to understand the stupidity of certainty.
The narrators deadpan conversational style made the concepts sneak up and bite you when you least expect it.
The explanations and concepts. (In particular the cognative psychology side.)Also the examples of the stream of constant lies we tell ourselves so we can appear to have control in a real world that has little or no control.It's scary but almost a relief to hear someone say out loud what we all suspected intuitively but couldn't annuciate. It's like coming out of the Matrix.
Great book. Definitely worth a relisten and probably a hardcopy.
If you like understanding human nature and how the world works, you will love this book!
I highly recommend this informative and entertaining audiobook.
I think most of the experiments the book discusses are things that is very useful to keep in mind while dealing with other people. They can give you and edge, or at least make some events easier to read.
I'd say it's a bit too long for one sitting.
Maybe at times it feels a bit like a collection of experiments with some explanations in between, I feel that at times it could have been a bit more abstract and removed from specific research.
I don't know, I don't have the print version
The Just life Fallacy.... you'll know why when you listen to the book
I am not so smart
The title may be misleading, this book is a must have!!!so far my best Audio-book
Listening to this book, I felt like I was cornered at a party by the snarky know-it-all who thinks he's a hipster. Maybe, like Seth Godin and the other social amalgamators who sell books with a promise to show you things you've heard and read a million times in a NEW WAY--with references to cultural phenom like Lost and Monty Python--this book might be better as an easily skimmable printed book.
